Otra Cosa is exactly that...something different in a place where eventually everything else starts to blur together. Cabarete is a fantastic beach town with plenty to do and lots of OK beach eateries. If you need a break from the ordinary, this is the place. The prices are expensive for a restaurant on the beach in the DR, but it's... More

Since we never eat at fancy places, we decided to eat here on our last night in the DR, for a nice romantic end to our trip. We sat in the corner of the patio, so we could see the view. Lucky for us, it was also the night of the lunar eclipse & boy, was it spectacular. We were... More

Nice place with a correct cuisine in a french style variation. Location is beautiful, service is nice and food is just correct. The only thing is about price. Paying around US$100 per person is overpriced at all and feels like an abuse to the tourists. Sorry but I won´t repeat

This was one of my favorite meals during our trip to the Dominican Republic. The staff were incredibly kind and attentive and the food - we got tuna and steak respectively in a chili ginger sauce - was absolutely phenomenal. Not to mention awesome touches in the decor that created a beautiful, tranquil dining experience overlooking the water. I will... More

We read about this place in Lonely Planet but had trouble finding it our first night in Cabarete. Ironically enough, it was right next to where we were staying, the Velero Beach resort. First, the ambiance is romantic and perfect, right on the beach. The seafood dishes we ordered were all perfect. Our table was right next to the beach,... More

Otra Cosa really is something else. The location is at a rather obscure end of a small lane off of a road behind Janet's supermarket. It is quite a simple setting for a tropical gem of a restaurant right on a small beach. There is a small and simple menu which is quite exquisite. All the flavours blend in and... More

Otra Cosa is one of our favorite places to eat in Cabarete. The food and setting is out of this world.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to revisit one of my favorite restaurants in Cabarete Otra Cosa is basically that........a unique place in this town, in a very relaxed atmosphere , with a very tropical up set, maybe even too rustic for my taste. French-oriented cuisine with high quality products, good execution thereof and great result in all areas, (Entree,... More

The location is beautiful however it looks like a shack from the outside. The table cloth was stained, and the hurricane lamp had a missing chip of glass. Details are important at this menu price point. We ordered two appetizers, one lobster and a salmon appetizer. The lobster was very chewy, the salmon app was missing the caviar which I... More

walk down the street next to Janet's Supermarket and you will find this almost hidden gem, next to La Punta apartments. Food is excellent and so is the atmosphere and the waiters. Certainly a place to visit again.
